New Tutorial - Flowers , Wire,and Buttons Wall Art for Childrens Room
What you need: Fabric, button covers, wire, paint, canvas, tiger grip glue.
Making the flower 'petals' - wrap the wire around something that will give you the size of your petal, then twist it off.
For each flower, I made 6 petals and form then into a 'petal' shape.
Covered buttons and centres of your flowers- Choose your button size and fabric
and make as many as you require.
The Canvas- Paint your canvas. I used Olive green and then
did a white wash over the top to give a 'weathered' look.
Paint on your 'grass'.
Paint on your sun on the top left corner.
Now put together your flowers! I made two different sizes, and 3 flowers in total.
Had to use a fair bit of glue for the wire to stick to the button.
Place the rest of the buttons randomly over the canvas.
Now add the other painted flowers.
I also made a gorgeous dragonfly using matching fabric.
I painted gold around the 'painted' round flowers, and mde a coiled wire 'flower' to tie in with the other wired flowers.
Voila!! Finished Painting!! Hope you like it!
I would love to hear your thought, so feel free to add any comments!!
